He won't be back this time

The sequel to Terminator Genisys, Terminator 2, has been removed from Paramount Pictures' release schedule, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The sequel to last year's movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger was supposed to be released on May 19, 2017, but has been pulled without any explanation from the studio.

That's not too surprising considering how dismally the movie performed at the box office and with critics. It only pulled in $89 million in the U.S. market and reached a total of approximately $440 million worldwide.

Dwayne Johnson's upcoming Baywatch adaptation will instead take the position in its place. The film, which is based on the television series from the '90s that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) and stars Johnson alongside Alexandra Daddario and Zac Efron.

Polygon has reached out to Paramount for comment on whether or not the sequel's removal means it has been canceled indefinitely.
